After plenty of rumors, Kevin Feige finally confirmed that talks have taken place with Keanu Reeves about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Marvel Studios president discussed the studio’s future plans with Comicbook.com during a press tour for Spider-Man Far From Home in London, and when asked if Marvel was talking to Reeves for anything, Feige replied, “We talk to him for almost every film we make. We talk to Keanu Reeves about… I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.”
Feige added that the studio underwent a similar process with Jake Gyllenhaal, who it spoke with several times before agreeing Mysterio was the perfect MCU role for the actor.
Reeves has already had a busy 2019, with much more to come. He starred in the widely successful John Wick 3 and has a voice role in Toy Story 4. The actor is also set to appear in the third Bill & Ted film as well as the video game, Cyberpunk 2077, and though he denies it, is rumored to play a role in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
Next up for Marvel Studios is Spider-Man: Far From Home, set to release on July 2. The film was directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
